4.2/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

350ml bottle, consumed Jun 2011.

A - Slightly hazy burnt orange body with a tightly bubbled head that thins out but hangs around for a long time, along with a lot of cling.

S - Big hop aromas of pine and citrus take the lead, with some sweeter fruit notes in the back.

T - Sweet opener which quickly gives way to a big bitter hop hit in the middle of the taste, with a lingering bitter finish. The taste follows the aromas, with pine, citrus and other fruit notes.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation, quite smooth and lingering.

O - Overall a fantastic example of the style. Possibly getting up there a little for a session beer (7.2% ABV) but a great one to sit and enjoy.

Another great IPA that I think everyone should try it smelled great,wasn't hard to go down and didn't leave that horrible bitter aftertaste in your mouth when your done drinking it. Just wish I would have poured it In a glass rather than straight from the bottle but other than that it was great
